“ Sometimes for everything to stay the same, everything must change ” as the hero in Lampedusa’s The Leopard says.
An antique dealer for nearly 20 years, I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by art from the start and to discover the most beautiful things, while being free of hand.
A childhood surrounded by César, Warhol and Fontana thanks to my father, a collector who passed on his passion …
My youth spent running around Drouot every Saturday afternoon after school. Unforgettable internships at the Louvre and Versailles. Creating sets like paintings for Templiers Production. And suddenly, at 26 I joined Galerie Aveline !
There, I learned my profession.
The art of understanding and selling treasures of French and European furniture from Louis XIV to Napoleon III in a 700m2 space at the Place Beauvau, in Paris.
The orchestration of great events such as the Paris Biennale, the Moscow fair, the great TEFAF in Maastricht where I was able to create splendid settings for exceptional works with Pierre Yovanovich, Jacques Garcia, Guillaume Féau...
The excitement of creating innovative exchanges between 18th century furniture and contemporary art, to reveal the talent of artists such as Michelangelo Pistolleto, Pascal Marthine Tayou, Daniel Buren...hand in hand with the Galerie Continua.
The confidence of the world’s most prestigious museums, such as the chateau de Fontainebleau, to raise funds for the restoration of furniture and fabric for Marie-Antoinette’s Turkish boudoir, the presentation of a collection of Empire period Sèvres porcelain during the exhibition IMPERIAL & ROYAL in order to find patrons to acquire it.
For 20 years, I have mounted exciting and often impossible projects.
For 20 years, I have fought to be a dealer in my own way and I’ve done this with a great deal of pleasure.
Today, a new chapter in my life begins with ART LINK and I am delighted to share this new adventure with you !
